Back to School with Lands’ End

 

On August 4th I attended the Lands’ End Back to School Event in NYC. As always Momtrends organized an amazing event at EZ Studios.

 

We met in the lobby of the Hilton and headed out to school buses where we received our Night School report card which we would get graded on as we went along.

 

First stop was Backpack Philosophy where I learned weight safety tips from Dr. Mary Ann Wilmarth of the American Physical Therapy Association. At Lands’ End you can find the perfectly sized backpack for your child’s height and weight.


Lands’ End has durability down to a science. At Pants 101 we were taught about their new invisible  IronKnee™ patch which drastically prolongs your child’s everyday pants.

Guests were also encouraged to Design Your First Day of school outfit.

 

At Lunchtime, celebrity chef Sam Talbot whipped up some easy lunch recipes that were delish. Pack’em in the Lands’ End MadBox ™ lunch boxes, designed by real kids. How cool is that?

Warren Tricomi was on hand at Hair School and styled us with the hottest hair styles for fall.

 

We also had the opportunity to take a class photo and get a 5 minute makeover from Revlon. I loved my look so much that I already bought all the Revlon products they used on me at my local CVS.

 

I passed the Dress Test and chatted with Brittany Gibbons on how to flatter your figure for fall.

Needless to say I passed all my courses Lands’ End Night School. Whew!

 

And I got my diploma! So it’s totally official.

 

 

Congrats to the entire 2012 graduating class of Lands’ End Night School!

Thanks Momtrends & Lands’ End for a fab party! Happy Back to School!

 

My huge shopping spree – Kmart Sears Land’s End Review

I love that I can buy items from Kmart, Sears and Land’s End with any of their gift cards. Recently I won a Kmart gift card from the #kmartchat Twitter party hosted by @crissy, @mommyinsider, @jollymom, @kmart and @stacieinatlanta. As you can imagine I was thrilled because that meant…. Shopping spree for me! I was in need of a few items and this great win was going to allow me to purchase a few items I’ve been needing. Ok and maybe not really needing.

 

First stop…. Kmart of course. I was hoping to find a tablet case but wasn’t successful. That’s ok, I got the mousepad I needed. It has a memory foam wrist spot to eliminate wrist pain from using the mouse. I also picked up a few household items too.

 

Next up Sears…. I’ve been dying for a dutch oven. Not quite sure why I didn’t own one previously but was realizing a lot of recipes I wanted to try called for one. It’s on! Dutch oven here I come. I bought the cutest red dutch oven as well as a food chopper. One of the main reasons I wanted a dutch oven was to finally make Julia Child’s famous Beef Bourgionne. (See my previous post HERE.)

 

I still have money to spare, now what? Besides Sears wide variety and great prices, they also have an entire Land’s End department. Again… it’s on. I bought the cutest black velvet blazer. Perfect to dress up jeans in the fall and winter. I also bought another cardigan set, I’m addicted to theirs. Plus 3 draped open cardigan sweaters. All the same, but in brown, black and grey. Oh and another grey sweater. Everything I purchase was on sale which was awesome plus I used my Sears Rewards so I could rack up points towards my next purchase.

 

All this for under $250. You heard me right! Kitchen goods, a new wardrobe and I still have some money to spare.

 

Thank you #KmartChat for a great party and all my new goodies. You rock!

Love Giving with Land’s End

I’ve been a Lands End shopper for years. My mom introduced them to me years ago. My mom is originally from Minnesota but is a New Jersey transplant. She knows cold! And so do the folks over at Lands End. Need a waterproof warm winter coat? Call Lands End! Or tweet them for that matter @LandsEnd @LandsEndPR and follow the #LandsEnd conversation.

Which is exactly how I was able to score the amazing chenille throw, candle holder and $50 gift card as pictured above. I’m completely obsessed with this throw. It is soooo comfy I can’t even tell ya. The candle holder is super cute and I cannot wait to spend my gift card. I’ve been eyeing up the LBD’s (Little Black Dress) on their site for a few weeks now.

 

On Cyber Monday they held the Land’s End 12 Hours of Twitter Event aka #12hrsTwitter. For 12 hours they gave away prizes upon prizes ranging from their adorable holiday collection, to warm coats and more. Say what you didn’t know they carried home goods? Um they totally do. They also carry some treats that sound insanely delectable like their Sea Salt Caramels.

 

Visit www.LandsEnd.com throughout December to view their St. Nick’s Picks. They offer daily deals on great products with exceptional values.

 

What’s that? You want to win a Land’s End Twitter contest too? Well ’tis the season! On Friday, December 16th Land’s End will be holding another Twitter party. Follow @LandsEndPR, @LandsEnd, @LEprMolly, @LEprMichele, @LEprMariella and @LandsEndPRAdam at #LandsEnd for all the deets!
